The Routledge Guidebook to Heidegger’s Being and Time examines the work of one of the most controversial thinkers of the twentieth century. Heidegger’s writings are notoriously difficult, requiring careful reading. This book analyses his first major publication, Being and Time, which to this day remains his most influential work.

The Routledge Guidebook to Heidegger’s Being and Time explores:

  • The context of Heidegger’s work and the background to his writing
  • Each separate part of the text in relation to its goals, meanings and impact
  • The reception the book received when first seen by the world
  • The relevance of Heidegger’s work to modern philosophy, its legacy and influence.

Following Heidegger’s original work closely, this guidebook examines the two central themes of scepticism and death. Mulhall skilfully examines the relationship between the book’s two parts, making it essential reading for all students of philosophy, and all those wishing to get to grips with this classic work.
